Bowing to China, Zoom deactivated accounts of US-based activists

Zoom performs work of China internet censors -- against users in the U.S.

The Communist Party of China managed to silence activists in the United States using a platform that allows data to pass through China, and has a poorly-understood relationship with the Chinese government.

Due to China's demands, Zoom deactivated the accounts of activits based in the United States who were marking the anniversary of the Tienanmen Square Massacre.

The video conferencing app company said in a company blog post they won't allow government requests from China to impact users outside mainland China "going forward," which of course sounds totally legit and trustworthy.

"Going forward @zoom_us will not allow requests from the Chinese government to impact anyone outside of mainland China."
